Automator - I talked to Jeff and if your interested he will put it up on the Corally USA site. However, the final setup is such a drastic change from any other setup that I would run at any track, I am not sure how much it will help you. If you are still interested though, let me know.

Thanks - Brad

I figured the setup would be completely different because I heard the track was extremely high bite. I am curious to see how the setup differs, to see what you guys did to accommadate all that traction. If I ever use the setup or not, I would still like to see it to compare.

Thanks

The car also had somewhat of a push that I also felt was taking away corner speed.

I'm not sure how to correct this problem so that the car isn't eating up a set of tires in 1 or 2 runs and pushing in the turns.

I'm running Jeff Brown's setup from the 06 Roar Asphalt Nats that was held at Speedworld Race Way.

Should I just try a completely different set-up? Any suggestions?

Much Thanx

Jeff Brown's setup is pretty darn good. I run a variation of it with other changes that he posted after the Nats. Did that occur at NorCal Hobbies? You just need to let me look at your car.

It might be as simple as the traction sauce you are using for that particular track. One thing you can do is lean the shocks in more on the tower. What is the track sprayed with, VHT?

I like the use of suspense, outland.
